Northeast Iowa Community College offered a construction simulation for interested students on Tuesday, Dec. 15. 

This simulation was held for students interested in working with big machinery, such as bulldozers and excavators, in the future.

“Twenty-one students experienced this program,” teacher Seth Harms said. “This is the first time we have seen a simulation like this.”

Harms would like this simulation to become a yearly event. 

Trent Deutmeyer, a sophomore, said, “The simulation was really cool, and it was realistic.”

Students wore goggles and sat in front of a screen while operating the simulation.

“I thought it would be cool to see how to run the heavy machinery,” Deutmeyer said. “I liked how it was hands on.”
